I've spent a pleasant Sunday cleaning up the shed, measuring up and preparing a list of materials needed to construct the decks, and then visiting Bunnings to get what I still need.

I found myself thinking of Cracker Larry's words of wisdom and wit over the years, and hoping for his speedy recovery. :D

Hey Michael, I had a pleasant Sunday getting ready to get beat up by cyclone Debbie!

Lee, do you rate Debbie as a greater threat than any of the ones since Yasi?

Yes, Debbie is potentially right up there with Yasi! It's a BIG system and forecast to wind up to Cat 4, maybe Cat 5. Hopefully, it will cross the coast where there aren't too many people. :?

Hi Glossie it's probably too late but I have a few no-longer-used computer heat sinks of various shapes and sizes, some with copper heat pipes so should be able to drag a fair bit of heat away even with low airflow. I live in the area so no problem getting them to you (and I'd love to peek at your work of art :D).

In any case you'll probably need some spares (my experience is that salt air does not do wonders for the inside of computers :lol: )

Good luck with it Lee. Seems she'll eye you off, up close and personal, around midnight.

I'll PM you Dyeman. You're most welcome to check out Skinnydip.

Anyone hear anything on gb's status? Just watched the news and the storm damage looked bad in some places.

Thanks for thinking of us Mr Paul.

Many thousands of residents along the tropical and subtropical sections of Australia's eastern coastline copped a flogging from Tropical Cyclone Debbie, either directly from destructive winds, or from consequent destructive and widely spread flooding.

Debbie largely spared us. We lost power for a couple of days, and had to chainsaw ourselves out of our property due to large trees down. We're counting our blessings.

With TC Debbie's impacts behind us, it's back to boat building this morning. But first breakfast in sunshine for the first time in a week.:D

Good to hear you didn't get done over by Debbie, Michael. We didn't even get some water in our dam.
